The glass is as full as you want it to be.

The glass is neither half empty, nor half full. The glass isn't empty. The glass isn't full. The glass is exactly as full as you want it to be.

Start with a glass. Now, fill it with as much water as you want in it. The glass is now as full as you want it to be.

Every positive adds water to the glass.
Every negative removes water from the glass.

Every positive has an equal and opposite negative.
Every negative has an equal and opposite positive.

The level of water in the glass can never change.

Therefore, the glass is exactly as full as you want it to be.

How full is YOUR glass?

Three versions of the world today...

1) My glass is half full, and only requires another half a glass to make it completely over the brim and overflowing... and while you're at it, make sure it's a 30 year old single malt Scotch.

2) Provided that someone doesn't come along and drinks my half empty glass of water and leaves me with dirty empty glass, which probably has a crack in it that will cut my hand when I try and wash it...

3) There is no glass, I deny your reality and substitue my own!

*chuckles* That is a good way to look at things most definitely.

The glass is half full of water and half full of air, making it totally full irrespective of the substance contained.

The glass is simply twice as large as required to hold the given volume of liquid.
